Abstract: 

This study examines the criterion-related valiedity of the results obtained by the application of two methods of assessment, that is, Farahzaed’s Objectified Method (1992) and Hurtaedo’s Method (1995), to the correction. of translations e/one by some university stuedents from English into Persian:’ To e/o so, three raters scored stuedents’ translations, first applying Farahzaed’s Method, and then Hurtaedo’s Method. The mean scores given by the raters were compared to the stuedents’ scores in 18 of the translator training courses which were categorized into four groups. The correlation coefficients between these two sets of scores inedicated the valiedity of the two methods. The results obtained by using Pearson’s correlation formula proved that the methods were valied as the correlation coefficients were above 0.4 (0.4 < r). Moreover, as the edifferences between them were less than 0.1, it was conclueded that they were equally valied.
